20th Century Week opened in New York with the Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale, which witnessed an extraordinary nine-minute bidding battle for lot 32, Constantin Brancusi’s La muse endormie, a bronze cast in 1913 and the first in the artist’s series of iconic ovoid sculptures. This extraordinary object, which was acquired by the distinguished French collector Jacques Ulmann in the 1950s and has remained in his family ever since, realised $57,367,500 (including buyer’s premium) — the top price of the night — after a dramatic contest between five bidders.
